As the sun rises on Christmas Eve, three games from Week 16’s NFL schedule are in the books.

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday. Kickoff is scheduled for Noon Arrowhead Time on CBS (locally on KCTV/5). According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Chiefs are favored by 10.5 points.

But there’s plenty of NFL action before then. Sunday’s early games include the (9-5) Cleveland Browns on the road against the (8-6) Houston Texans on CBS (KCTV/5), an NFC North battle between the (10-4) Detroit Lions and (7-7) Minnesota Vikings from Minneapolis on FOX (WDAF/4), the (8-6) Indianapolis Colts visiting the (6-8) Atlanta Falcons on FOX, the (7-7) Seattle Seahawks going to Nashville to play the (5-9) Tennessee Titans on CBS, the (4-10) Washington Commanders visiting the (5-9) New York Jets on CBS and the (2-12) Carolina Panthers hosting the (6-8) Green Bay Packers on FOX.

In the late afternoon games, we’ll have the (10-4) Dallas Cowboys in Florida to play the (10-4) Miami Dolphins on FOX (WDAF/4), the (8-6) Jacksonville Jaguars visiting the (7-7) Tampa Bay Buccaneers on CBS and the (5-9) Chicago Bears hosting the (3-11) Arizona Cardinals on FOX.

Following all of those games, the (3-11) New England Patriots will be in Colorado to play the (7-7) Denver Broncos on “Sunday Night Football,” which will be carried on NBC — locally on KSHB/41.

Then after the Chiefs’ game on Christmas Day, there will be an NFC East battle: the (10-4) Philadelphia Eagles hosting the (5-9) New York Giants on FOX (WDAF/4)

Here are our picks for Sunday’s Week 16 matchups — and the Giants-Eagles game on Christmas. Be sure to cast your vote, too!
